Ilchester Place is wonderfully situated between Holland Park and High Street Kensington. As well as the excellent shopping and a wide selection of restaurants on and around the High Street, our apartment has the added advantage of overlooking Holland Park Gardens, considered to be one of London’s most beautiful and romantic parks, an oasis of green with specimen trees and lovely shrubs. There is also a cricket field and tennis courts. Holland Park has a reputation as an affluent and fashionable area, known for attractive terraces of large Victorian townhouses of which Richard Branson owns one!
Our flat is on the 5th floor with a lift, and the whole flat has a light and comfortable feel, and is in excellent decorative order throughout. The spacious and nicely furnished living room covers the length of the flat with windows at both ends overlooking trees, the tennis courts and cricket field. There is a rectangular dining table and seating for eight at one end of the room.
